The City has begun a new tradition this year, honoring college-bound Paramount High School students. The "Boulevard of Scholars" recognizes the top 25 such seniors, based on their GPAs, along Alondra between Lakewood Blvd. and Paramount Blvd.
This will be a yearly acknowledgment. The banners have the student's senior photo and their college destination, and are on display into the summer.
The City of Paramount, working with the City of Bellflower and the non-profit organization PATH, has developed a "Plan to Prevent and Combat Homelessness" that outlines priorities in addressing these issues in both cities. Funding from Measure H through the County Homeless Initiative has made the plan possible.
Property crimes in Paramount declined a healthy 21% in the first quarter of 2018, with burglaries down a dramatic 31%. Still, no crime level is ever acceptable to the City.
To help Paramount residents make their homes more secure, the City has started a Home Security Rebate Pilot Program for those purchasing a security product or service designed to deter property crimes.
Paramount residents can receive a rebate of up to $200 for such a purchase of their choice.
